Why would someone ever want to throw garbage in something so expensive? But then, do we ever understand the uber-rich mentality? The world’s most expensive garbage cans are the work of contemporary pop artist, Sylvie Fleury. These ‘posh’ garbage cans are made of steel pressed with gold leaf.
They are available in a limited edition of 25 pieces and each one is stamped with “SF 2003” and its individual number on the underside. Number 25 was made available at Phillips de Pury & Company’s Contemporary Art Sale in New York on May 15th 2009. These garbage cans are available for $10,000 – $15,000. Frankly, I would think twice before throwing trash in this.
